Vedas and Upanishads

Dear bhAgavathas,

       While reciting sikshavalli(taitriya upanishad) after "AmAyanthu 
bramhacharina swAhA" we skip "vimayanthu bramhacharina swAhA and 
pramayanthu bramhacharina swAhA" and continue from "yaso janesani 
swAhA".  Are the parts we skip not in original version of Upanishads?  
adiyEn was told that those were not our pAtam.  

       Similarly, in pancha sukthi we recite only "sa brahma sa siva 
sEndra" whereas some books seem to have  "sa brahma sa siva sa hari 

       The above variations are clear when we have a Smartha book and 
the one published by SriVaishnava author.  

       i seek members of this forum for clarification on the above.
